Wild Affair was once again a time for Zoo staff to break out the wigs, costumes and dance moves for the opening number before the live auction. I am always amazed at how creative the staff can be when faced with the challenge of out-doing ourselves from the last year.
We performed to the theme music of James Bond and it turned out great. I had the chance to transform myself from mild-manner Reservationist to Foxy Brown. It comes easily to me, since I have had the pleasure to become this character for the last 2 years. When I came on board with the Zoo a couple of years ago, I would have never imagined I would get the chance to perform on stage. Nor would I have imagined I could play a character from my favorite era, in the best costume!
Check out some pictures of the other Sacramento Zoo Players. From Animal Care, Membership, Education, Marketing, Catering, Vet Staff and Maintenance - everyone gets involved. You can even see our very own Zoo Director, Mary Healy as "Mary Meter Maid" below. She's the one in the bike helmet!
